If you’re thinking, “Where can I find Dysport treatment near me?” come to Advanced Skin Therapy in Arlington, WA. Our expert consultants will help you achieve natural-looking results.

What is Dysport?

None of us can escape the aging process. Sooner or later, we’re all going to notice those first furrows appearing between our eyebrows. When you frown, your brow muscles contract to form vertical dynamic wrinkles. Eventually, these become entrenched, resulting in glabellar lines often referred to as “angry elevens”. However, targeted injections with Dysport® can dispel or reduce these wrinkles to make your brow look smoother and more serene.


How Does Dysport Work?

Dysport is injected into 5 target areas in a broad V-shape on your forehead. It blocks the nerves in the treated area from sending signals to the underlying muscles to contract. The relaxed muscles allow the skin between your brows to flatten out, removing that perpetually worried look.

Targeted Areas That Can Be Treated with Dysport

Dysport is FDA-approved for the treatment of glabellar lines. However, it can be used off-label to treat other problems and conditions including:

  • Horizontal forehead wrinkles.
  • Neck bands.
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes.
  • Bunny lines alongside the nose.
  • Enlarged masseter and temporalis muscles.
  • Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).

Risks and Side Effects of Dysport Treatment

To minimize any risks and achieve the best possible results, ensure that you follow the Dysport before and after treatment instructions provided by your aesthetician. Side effects are very mild and usually resolve within 48 hours. These include:

  • Transient headache.
  • Redness, minor swelling, or bruising.
  • Some pain around the injection site.

How Long Does Dysport Take To Work and How Long Does It Last?

Dysport has a more rapid onset than similar products such as Botox. It starts working immediately with visible results occurring in as little as 2–14 days and lasting for up to 4–6 months. You can help to extend the results of your treatment with good sun protection and keeping your skin and body well hydrated.

Who Should Use Dysport?

Anyone over the age of 18 with marked glabellar lines is a good candidate for treatment. However, there are a few exceptions. You should not opt for this treatment if:

  • Cow’s milk protein. 
  • Have a significant neurological disease, such as myasthenia gravis.
  • You’re pregnant or nursing.
  • If you have volume loss-related wrinkles—rather opt for a dermal filler treatment instead.
